What is Jack?

Jack is a great, multi-purpose commodity for AmigaOS - and now AROS, Classic Amiga and MorphOS.

* Jack no longer requires an Internet connection to startup. Instead dialog
boxes will appear over relevant icons and buttons to inform user of functions
that are inaccessible.

* Whenever Jack needs to access a remote resource it will now always check an
internet connection is available first before attempting anything else.

* Connections: All data connections have been tidied up and consolidated where
possible. HTTP error handling has now been implemented for handling 404 errors
and lost in connection will be picked up. HTTP Resume has not been looked at
this stage.

* Renamed and expanded the Audio and Music bundle to include the Video player-

* Entering a http:// address in the File Manager path will now check for OpenURL
and use that instead of defaulting to Jack's backup URL handler.

* Slideshow: Fixed position of Reflections.

* Slideshow: Fixed traversing Volumes/Drawers.

* Slideshow: Fixed errors in loading images without an Alpha-channel.
